UCC Joins Nationwide Policy Efforts for Clean Fuel, Vehicles & Infrastructure at Energy Independence Summit in Washington, D.C.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – February 5th, 2020.

Utah Clean Cities Executive Director, Tammie Bostick, and Senior Project Manager, Emily Paskett, will join clean transportation leaders from across the nation next week in Washington, D.C. to educate federal policymakers on the need to accelerate America’s adoption of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies. Bostick and Paskett will participate in the Energy Independence Summit 2020, the nation’s premier clean transportation policy event, onFebruary 10-12.

While there has been a recent drop in gasoline prices, they remain extremely volatile, and the U.S. continues to send more than $200 billion per year to OPEC and other nations for oil, stated Bostick. According to Bostick, the transition to alternative fuels must support America’s growing economy and secure a healthy future for our communities. 

“We are traveling to Washington D.C. to ensure that our Utah legislative delegates understand that the U.S. and Utah must strategically expand our use of stateside fuels. To stabilize all fuel prices and decrease our reliance on imported oil, we must increase our renewable fuel portfolio and lessen our dependence on fossil fuels in the transportation and energy sector,” she said. “For Utah, the message is clear: we must tackle our serious air quality issues with the goal of zero emissions at the tailpipe.”
